Inductive sensing is a contactless technique for applications ranging from position or motion measurement of a conductive target to detection of spring compression or extension. Depending on the specific application, there are different system requirements regarding sensitivity, responsiveness, and power. Power consumption is a key parameter for many applications, including wearables, consumer electronics, and some automotive applications. This application note covers techniques to reduce power consumption for TI’s LDC1312, LDC1314, LDC1612, and LDC1614 inductive-to-digital converters and various experiments to verify the effectiveness of these power-reducing techniques.
